For true crime lovers,

There is a little independent production that is considered to be among the best projects that the Manson group has inspired.

Although Charles Manson was not a typical serial killer (he was not even the material author of the famous crimes that ended the life of Sharon Tate, among others, in 1969), his dangerous activities have turned him into a myth: the actions of his cult and the social echo of the crimes that were committed in his shadow are considered very significant for the way they put an end to the hippie culture that was unleashed with the “summer of love” of 1967 in the area of San Francisco.

The cult leader is brought to life in this amazing independent film from 2018, which was directed by none other than Matt Smith (‘The House of the Dragon,’ ‘Doctor Who’). Manson has been discussed in a variety of ways, with the primary focus always being on his magnetic figure and the influence he wielded over people who were in his immediate vicinity. “Manson’s Girls” is the title of the next film that will be available on Prime Video.

The film “The Manson Girls” chronicles the lives of three women—Hannah Murray, Sosie Bacon, and Marianne Rendón—who were found guilty of committing crimes under the direction of Charles Manson and sentenced to death for their actions. They begin to question Manson’s views and abilities to manipulate others while they are incarcerated and responding to queries from students. Due in large part to Smith’s outstanding performance, we will be able to witness the history of the three individuals, during which their lives will be recounted on the ranch belonging to the cult. This property will provide us with a vision that is gloomy and overwhelming.

The film’s originality lies not only in the fact that it depicts life at the Manson ranch from the point of view of women, which enables us to have a better understanding of the toxic and addictive charisma of the murderer, but also in the fact that it depicts the entire deprogramming process that takes place in prison, with which they attempt to leave behind their lives as members of a cult. Mary Harron, who was one of the most notable directors of her day for her adaptation of “American Psycho,” created a film that included a point of view that was both unique and important.

Even though, at first glance, Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood by Quentin Tarantino appears to be a lighthearted comedy starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt, the film is, in keeping with Tarantino’s signature style, concealing a mysterious and sinister secret. Margot Robbie, who plays Sharon Tate, is the third member of the major cast. She is the same Sharon Tate who was the target of Charles Manson and the Manson family, and who was ultimately murdered by them.

The film also features Damon Herriman in the role of Charles Manson, who is portrayed by the actor. Reviewers who have viewed the movie have pointed out that Margot Robbie does not have any lines related to the film’s use of exploitation, which may have a negative impact on the Manson part of the tale. If, on the other hand, you were hoping to learn about history from Quentin Tarantino, you are probably barking up the wrong tree. From Inglorious Basterds to Django Unchained, the director and writer has been playing fast and loose with history throughout his entire career.

Having said that, it is a worthy undertaking to educate oneself more thoroughly about the Manson Family and the numerous heinous atrocities they committed. This is true regardless of whether you are going to the theater to watch Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood or are merely returning home and wondering how much of what you saw on screen is actually true. With this in mind, the following is a list to some of the best documentaries about the Manson Family that are now available on streaming services. The focus of this guide is specifically on those documentaries that involve the inclusion of the Manson women, which is an area that Tarantino appears to have left out of the film.

This actual crime saga is explored in a way that has never been done before thanks to Fox’s exploration of the Manson family. Inside the Manson Cult is a documentary that explores Spahn’s Ranch, the residence of the Manson family, and is narrated by Liev Schreiber. The documentary is compiled from more than one hundred hours of video. Interviews with less well-known members, such as Catherine “Gypsy” Share and Dianne “Snake” Lake, as well as interviews with law enforcement officials who worked on the case, are included in the documentary that lasts for two hours. This is the content you should be looking for if you are looking for anything that goes beyond a simple explanation.

Despite the fact that the two-hour special that ABC has produced is rather predictable, it does provide a useful overview of the origins of the cult and how it ultimately resulted in the heinous murder of Sharon Tate. It is a rare opportunity to get a glimpse into the mind of a psychopath, and the highlight is an interview with Charles Manson.

1969 is a pivotal year in the history of the United States, and each episode of this documentary series focuses on a different facet of that year. In contrast, there is a special episode that is dedicated to the murderous followers who would later become known as the Manson Girls. This episode airs in between specials on the moon landing and Woodstock. When compared to previous documentaries about the Manson family, this one stands out due to the fact that it focuses on the women of the Manson family in addition to focusing on Charles Manson himself.

The book “Manson’s Girl” provides an in-depth examination of Susan Atkins, also known as “Sexy Sadie,” who was a follower of Charles Manson and was personally involved in eight of the murders committed by Manson. She stated that she assisted Manson in carrying out these killings in order to initiate “Helter Skelter,” which was an apocalyptic racial war that Manson believed would take place. Atkins was a fervent disciple of Manson. Manson’s Girl is a terrific forty-minute deep dive into one of the most horrifying members of the cult, but there are times when it feels like it’s a little too much like daytime television as well.

Patricia Krenwinkel, a member of the Manson Family who was intimately involved in the family’s criminal activities, is the subject of this episode, which delves into her life. Because of her involvement in the killings, Krenwinkel was put on trial, found guilty, and given a sentence of life in prison instead of parole. In this documentary, Krenwinkel, who is now 66 years old, reflects on the crimes she committed previously. The only title on our list that follows a member of the Manson Family as they reflect on their previous criminal acts is Life After Manson, and for that reason alone, it is recommended that you watch it.
